Two must-see films
to watch before your trip. 1. Güeros (2014) This comedy is set against the backdrop of student protests in the Mexican capital circa 1999 and follows a group of friends searching for a legendary folk musician. It’s considered one of the best Mexican films of the new millennium. 2. Los Olvidados (1950) This film follows a group of destitute children who are dodging juvenile detention and gang warfare in Mexico City. It’s an unflinching look into the city’s poverty that is devoid of pity: It’s a ferocious, funny and occasionally surreal social critique that has stood the test of time.
